This was the best dining experience we had on our 8 day trip around Iceland. The langoustines were amazing, as all the other reviews mention. The biggest surprise was the licorice creme brulee. Icelandic people seem to love to eat a lot of licorice, so...More

We had a nice bottle of champagne we needed to drink, so we first asked if we could bring our bottle in-house. "Yes, for 2,500 ISK". Can we get meals takeaway? "Yes, any of the langoustine items, lamb or chicken salad". We ordered the garlic...More

While driving through south eastern Iceland my adult son requested we stop at the Pakkhus Restaurant in Hofn for lunch as they also served Vatnajokul beer, made in Iceland using water from the Vatnajokul glacier. The food was great as was the beer.

Moderately expensive for icelandic standards (mains from 3500-6000 ISK) but well worth it. Nice atmosphere, friendly service and great food quality. We had fish of the day (ocean ling) and langoustines. Reservation can be useful, we had to wait +/- 15' to get a table.

Response from Pakkhus R | Property representative |
Pakkhús does not take reservations. If the restaurant is full when you arrive there is a nice waiting area with a private bar and card games to kill the time.
